Abstract:

The author considers Russias program of conventional arms and nuclear technology exports in terms of the domestic and international security ramifications of that policy. After introducing some of the dangers that a virtually unrestricted arms sales or transfer program poses for the sellers, he analyzes the impact of these sales on Russias domestic politics and economics. The author traces the confirmed reports of nuclear transfers and their impact on both domestic and foreign policies. He then examines the nature and repercussions of Russian arms sales abroad, in particular to India, Iran, China, the members of ASEAN, and the two Koreas. The author concludes with a somber warning of the risks, foreign and domestic, posed by these sales, and offers a number of recommendations for the United States to consider in dealing with this problem.
